But how do you deal with someone who rejects your broad moral principles?
So some judges are "on the system" and some aren't? Do 3Ls just apply to the non-system judges early and hope for the best? I've never really understood this...
Applicant never had a chance.
Yes, you can go through this process again as a graduate applicant, but think about what that means. Right now, I can consider clerkships across the nation, because I haven't settled down in any particular region; after a year working you'll have just gotten used to your job, home, and salary--only to leave all three. Plus, it would be awful to go through the experience of being denied a clerkship only through chance.Judge Ambro of the 3rd Circuit has discussed moving to a matching system, much like med school programs use. Applicants interview with the judges that like them, then both the applicants and judges rank their preferences. Judges get clerks who really want to be with THEM, and applicants at least have some agency in the post-interview decision-making process (right now, you basically have to accept the first offer you receive, even if you didn't like the judge and have interviews coming up with judges you prefer).
